Our Mission

The Shelter Island Educational Foundation pursues, creates and provides excellent educational opportunities that enhance, inspire and broaden the horizons of our children and the community.

The Foundation seeks to go beyond the boundaries of local school district budgetary obligations and geographic isolation, augmenting the resources of individual teachers, family and community, and nourishing our unique island heritage. In examining the many possibilities for enrichment opportunities, the Foundation is focused on those areas that help our children chart a productive course from their own abundant shores to the boundless world of knowledge and understanding.
